Denning v Greenhalgh Financial Services Ltd

Negligence – Professional person. The Queen's Bench Division struck out the claimant's claim against the defendant company for professional negligence for breach of a professional duty, in tort and/or contract, by not performing a detailed review of pension transfer advice given to the claimant eight years earlier by unrelated advisers and entered summary judgment for the defendant. The defendant had owed no duty to the claimant and the claim had no real prospect of succeeding.
